With Christmas just around the corner you’re probably thinking about what to get for the special people in your life. It can be difficult buying presents for people for any occasion particularly if you are under a tight budget. Here are a couple of my favourite unique finds…
For the Tavel lover – Scratch Map
They can scratch off the places they’ve been on the map and plan trips they hope to go to. The idea is that they will try to scratch off as many places as they can. I have one of these my self and I love it.
If they are a student there are loads of gap year and bucket list books by lonely planet that you can get on amazon or any good book store.
For the book worm – Book cover locket
I think these are so unique, they do a variety of book covers so you could find their favourite classic novel to put on to the locket.
For the film lover – popcorn machine and bags
I mean it is their own cinema at home!
or for the person who wants to get into movies… a scratch off 100 bucket list movies poster

For the music lover – (if they have vinyls) a vinyl frame, new earphones or portable speaker. For the person who I into hearing all the classics there is also a scratch off 100 albums bucket list poster.
For anyone – books
I don’t think anyone can go wrong with a book, it can be about anything they are interested in from gardening to traveling. There are loads of thoughtful books on Urban outfitters if you need some ideas.
For the fashion aficionado – The new fashion rules by Victoria Magrath
I have followed Victoria’s blog for a long time now and she has the most amazing style and knowledge of fashion – definitely something a fashion lover would love to delve into.
For the Make up addict – Makeup storage or a set from their favourite brand. ASOS do some great ones by a variety of brands or if you want to go more upmarket SpaceNK do some beautiful sets as well from bath and body to lipstick and eyeshadows.
For the foodie – something for the kitchen or you can get books of the best places to eat in different cities.
For the sentimental – A photo book
I recommend Snapfish as I have used them before – the quality is really good and they are the cheapest company I can find that do them. I did one for my Dad documenting all the places we had travelled to and adventures we had been on. You can customise the pages yourself, adding text, changing the layout of the pictures and the background.
For anyone – Candles or bath things
Everyone likes gifts that they can use to relax. My favourite bath oils are from Aromatherapy – they can be a bit pricy but smell amazing.
I hope this little guide helps! Do you have any go to or unique gift ideas that you love? Tell me in the comments 🙂
